Linux 2.6 - man page for checksecurity (linux section 8)

CHECKSECURITY(8)								 CHECKSECURITY(8)

NAME
       checksecurity - Run a collection of simple system checks

SYNOPSIS
       checksecurity

DESCRIPTION
       The  checksecurity  command  runs  a  small  collection	of simple system checks which are
       designed to catch a few common security issues.	checksecurity is run by cron in  a  daily
       basis.

CONFIGURATION
       The  checksecurity.conf	file defines several configuration variables: MAILTO, CHECK_DISK-
       FREE, CHECK_PASSWD and CHECK_SETUID LOGDIR.  Each is described below.

       The checksecurity program works	with  a  collection  of  plugins  which  are  located  in
       /usr/share/checksecurity and are configured individually by their own configuration file.

       CHECK_PASSWD  If  this  is set to TRUE then the check-passwd script will be invoked.  This
       script is designed to report upon system accounts which have no passwords.  CHECK_DISKFREE
       If  this  is  set to TRUE then the check-diskfree script will be invoked and will allow an
       alert to be sent if there is any  mounted  partition  is  running  short  on  disk  space.
       CHECK_SETUID  If  this  is  set to TRUE then the check-setuid script will be invoked, this
       will compare the setuid binaries upon the system to those that existed previously and show
       the differences.
